Richard Dansky is leaving Ubisoft after 23 years. He served as the lead writer for the Tom Clancy series.
For over 20 years, Richard Dansky was the lead writer for Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy series. As he announced on LinkedIn, this is now over as he will be leaving Ubisoft and Red Storm Entertainment at the end of the year. In the future he will work at Crytek on Hunt:Showdown.
Dansky writes, “After 23 years, I will be leaving Red Storm Entertainment at the end of December and joining Crytek to work on their horror game Hunt: Showdown. I’m incredibly excited about this new opportunity – and I look forward to joining the team that has already done so much great work developing the world of HUNT.”
“I am very grateful to Red Storm and Ubisoft for the opportunities they have given me to learn and grow over the years, but it was an opportunity I could not in good conscience have turned down. It’s literally everything I’ve wanted to do in a game for years.”
During his time at Ubisoft, he was able to dedicate himself to IP development as well as writing, including story development and story editing. He was a key writing resource for the company.
Dansky has had the opportunity to work on many Tom Clancy projects such as Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six and most recently Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. In addition, he has also written and edited scripts for other Ubisoft gaming brands including Might & Magic, Far Cry and Blazing Angels. He is also the author of seven novels and a collection of short stories.
